If you're looking for old pubs in Leed city centre, then be sure to check out Palace Leeds on Kirkgate. Come rain or shine, this fabulous venue has a gorgeous beer garden alongside a cosy indoor space. As for food? Expect mouthwatering hearty fare and ice-cold brews.
If you're looking for a pub to wet your whistle at, there's no better place than Old Ball. Nestled in Horsforth, this contemporary boozer boasts hanging foliage and bare-brick walls. Even better? It's home to scrumptious grub, tasty tipples and epic sports screenings.
A hidden gem, Water Lane Boathouse is the canalside pub that comes top for freshly-baked pizza, craft beer and gorgeous views. Head here in the winter to cosy up with a hearty feast, or enjoy the sprawling outdoor terrace when the sun decides to shine.
Nestled in Meanwood, Beck & Call is a neighbourhood local with home-cooked pub food and cask ales at the forefront of the menu. Settle into a cosy nook of the dining room or head outside when the sun's out, and you'll find a colourful beer garden providing a sense of sanctuary.
Hyde Park Hotel is a great shout in the area. Along with vegan options and bottomless brunches, the boozer flaunts scrumptious grub, from tasty tacos to burgers and pizza cones. Plus, the venue hosts quizzes every Tuesday as well as regular sports fixtures if you fancy watching some footie.
After pub lunch in Leeds city centre? Keep it cheap with Walkabout. Not only has this place got games galore across its pool tables and on big screens, but meals bring a choice of 'bonza' burgers, loaded sharing plates, wings and more - all washed down by beer.
Headrow House is definitely one of the best pubs in Leeds centre, taking up residency in a former 1900's textile mill and offering not one, but two roof terraces for alfresco sips. That's not all though, as the resident kitchen comes occupied by the Michelin Guide recommended Ox Club.
Having originally opened in 1802, The Cross Keys is a stalwart on the city's pub scene. Whether you're here for an after-work drink in their beer garden or one of their award-winning Sunday roasts by the fire, this Water Lane boozer has got you covered.
Sunday roasts, craft beers and stained glass windows are all on the menu at the oldest pub in Leeds. Head to Whitelock's Ale House and Turks Head where antique interiors pay tribute to its 300-year-old history whilst its courtyard lets you soak up the relaxed atmosphere and sun all at once.
As well as stocking over 200 beers at this pick of CAMRA pubs in Leeds, Tapped also creates a range of mouthwatering slices from authentic Italian dough. Choose between popular toppings, such as pepperoni and jalapenos, or opt for one of the more unusual pizzas, along the lines of seitan doner and chicken tikka.
Not only do The Brewery Tap make their own craft beers onsite, meaning you're in for some of the freshest pints around, but they also cook up a host of pub grub classics. Nestle into a comfortable corner and tuck into fish and chips, sausage and mash, burgers and steak pie. It wouldn't be a Leeds pub crawl without this one.
